Here’s the thing. I am working non stop on setting things up, setting my life up, up to something. I am putting many pieces together, and many others I am taking apart. I am trying to follow different recipes for happiness, success, and financial solidity. They do not always agree, mostly the opposite, so I have to improvise a bit, mixing them up in the most logic way I can figure out. Sometimes it’s all really like cooking, in fact it’s not by chance we use idioms like “salt of life”, “ingredients for happiness”, “recipe for success”, and so on. And like when cooking a meal, from time to time we have to taste life, to probe our current management and perspectives, to see if things are actually going well, or if we rather need to take some corrective actions.
Well, again, here’s the thing. Sometimes life it’s not just like cooking, but more like robot-cooking: you can take all the time you want for preparing the raw ingredients and setting everything up, but sooner or later you’ll have to start the cooking program and, once you do it, there is no way to turning back.
So, and this time for real, here’s the thing. What about if you start the program and realize immediately afterwards that the process is just going to cut you in many tiny little pieces? That would suck, huh?
